2 Tips to Create Content When Your Senior Living Community has no Time
One of the greatest shared challenges for senior living marketing practitioners is having too much work and not enough time. Your team may see the value that content creates, but time is fleeting.
According to HubSpot, most marketers take between one to two hours to produce a 500-word blog post. An hour or more spent researching and writing content is also an hour that could be spent on the phones, sending emails, conducting tours…the list goes on.
If your team feels stumped, we have some useful tips to help. In this post, you’ll learn:
- Two content marketing tips for effective content creation when your team has no time
Tip #1: Repurpose Slides from a Recent Presentation
Have one of your team members recently created a presentation chock full of eye-opening statistics? Regardless if the material was presented at a rotary event, executive leadership meeting, conference, or other event; chances are, there’s a wealth of topics to mine.
Once your senior living marketing team has found a presentation to deconstruct, use a format that compliments the material from presentation slides. Aside from blog content, your team could repurpose slides into:
- Short videos
- Case Studies
- Social Posts
- Online Polls
Content takes on many forms. Choose one that matches the presentation you’ve selected and use the format prospective residents and ACIs will find the most valuable.
Tip #2: Conduct Interviews with Residents for Their POVs
Sometimes the most compelling ideas for your content are in front of you. Your residents each have a unique story. To leverage this opportunity, identify residents who have compelling stories to tell and use that as fuel for effective content creation.
Have those individuals provide their POV on specific topics. Some potential ideas your community could use include:
- What event led the resident to research and gather information about your senior living community or CCRC?
- How long did the process take until they were comfortable enough to call your community home?
- What about your community or CCRC did that resident find most appealing?
These stories add a layer of authenticity to your content and can be a competitive differentiator. During resident interviews, also look to capture slice of life moments. Can your senior living marketing team identify a resident with a unique talent, hobby, or skill? Use this material in your content to add some variety to your mix of topics.
